I had my appendix removed on Friday and the surgery went smooth. Today, I started experiencing a really sharp pain on my right side. It feels like an intense side ache.

Some things are not simple. If the pain feels the same as appendicitis, and/or if you are having fever or chills with this, you should go back to the emergency room for this. As with most questions I get here, I do not know the particulars of your case. I would suggest that your surgeon would best be able to answer your questions, you should call their office and ask this question of their nurse or talk to the surgeon. You can get the best information from them as they know your case.
Massage area with Family Dollar chest rub. You have adhesions. Perform gente stretching twice a day.
It is not uncommon to have vague aches and pain after surgery that can persist for 2-6 weeks. More worrisome signs include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fevers. If the pain worsens, contact your surgeon for further guidance.

You should call your surgeon's office to discuss with them.
